Book Review: Sir Licksalot & The Island Fools
Sir Licksalot & The Island
Author: D.L. Carroll
Illustrations: Teri Cuneo
Publish America- Baltimore
This is an adventure book for kids 8-12 years old and such a
fun book. From the magic fountain which takes Blaze, Danny, Bobby, and the rest
of the gang to a volcano on a HawaiianIsland to everyday peer
conflicts, this book entertains and engages the reader from the first page. The
title even is mysterious as the reader discovers what Fools really stands for.
Woven throughout the story are real life struggles for
Blaze. He is in a new town, new school, and making new friends and seriously
missing his old friends. Combined with a bully, a nerd, and a girl named CiCi
who finds the need to tag alone, these characters will win your heart as they
all build trust and friendship throughout the adventures provided from the
magic fountain. And the addition of Sir Licksalot is heartwarming and funny.
The author has also included within the story great tidbits
on Hawaiian history and folklore and as well as native language translations.
It enhances the story line while demonstrating the history of friendship and
very subtle life lessons. Readers will read it again and look anxiously for the
next book in the series to follow more adventures with the characters and their
dog, Sir Licksalot.
